Epic victory for LeGrand and Colonia

As #11 New Brunswick prepared to host Colonia on Thursday night, it's quite possible that the only people that thought the Patriots had a chance to pull off the upset were the Patriots themselves. Well the unlikely definitely happened, thanks to two touchdowns from Eric LeGrand in the last five minutes of the game, as the Patriots defeated the Zebras 20-19.

LeGrand, who is committed to play for Rutgers, finished the game with 135 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns on 18 carries.

"We believed all week," said an excited LeGrand, who helped the Patriots improve to 2-1 on the season. "It's just like the Appalachian State/Michigan game, because they're Top 10 in the state, but that doesn't matter. Now we're going to come back next week and keep choppin'. This is a great win for us."
